Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala): Popping Audio Fix

It is not much of a secret that the launch of Ubuntu 9.10 aka Karmic Koala has not gone quite as smoothly as Canonical Ltd would have hoped, however developments are slowly being made which are beginning to help rectify some of the most annoying issues associated with the release.

Following all of the responses regarding my previous ‘Ubuntu 9.10 (Karmic Koala): Are You Experiencing Problems?‘ article I thought I would scour the web for fixes that may help out some of our readers.

The first fix I have found relates to a popping noise which is experienced with some Intel HDA (high-definition) audio chipsets, this fix was originally posted on YouTube by a user called “shmalignant“, the fix is pretty simple, rather than explain it myself I have embedded the video below, heres the direct link to the video.

I must just add that although there are no likely problems associated with this fix, if you choose to attempt the fix it is at your own risk (editing this particular .conf file shouldn’t cause problems.

Did this fix work for you?
